How is RamsConnect used for WoW events?

All Weeks of Welcome in-person and virtual WoW event submissions are posted to the Weeks of Welcome RamsConnect group where new and returning students will (1) explore event options, (2) register for events of interest, and (3) provide feedback for attended events.

What are my responsibilities as a WoW event host?

At minimum, WoW events hosts will:

  • Ensure event information is accurate and up to date, and edit your event as needed
  • Confirm event spaces
  • For virtual events: Create your own event space links and manage your online program experience
  • For in-person events: Ensure space reservations and support needs are confirmed
  • Complete attendance check in for each event hosted (This is vital to help us track students eligible for participation prizes.)

Student volunteers are available to assist with break out rooms or attendance tracking.

How do I log into RamsConnect?

Log into RamsConnect with your VCU eID  If you are accessing the platform for the first time, you will be prompted to accept the “Terms & Conditions”

Why are WoW event hosts officers in the RamsConnect WoW group?

All contacts who have submitted WoW events are listed as officers in the WoW group. Those individuals should have received an email confirming their role as a group officer. Your officer status allows you to:

  • Edit your event posting
  • Track participant attendance
  • Access event assessment data

Your officer privileges allow you additional access to make changes to the WoW RamsConnect group beyond your specific event, so please be sure to edit your event only and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

However there are benefits to creating a dedicated group for your department for WoW and beyond. Our RamsConnect user community is growing daily.
